Ok the discussion at the end of the second part with all of them and Allison telling them about the military contingency plan, sheds some light on why Hack and Henry never told anyone about their own time jump at the end of season one.
Since Fargo is now the head of GD does that mean Allison never was?
And since this is a different timeline who might we run into? Did Beverly Barlowe’s link to the Consortium come out? Is she free and could she return to cause havoc?
What happened to “The Artifact” since Kevin is not autistic, did this Kevin ever communicate with it? And what ever happened to Kim Deacon?
Did Nathan Stark die in this time-line? Might we see him again.
Maybe so, but her underlying programming is that of a military killer. Season One showed that very clearly (“H.O.U.S.E. Rules”). Who knows what happened in this universe? Maybe Fargo had Larry do the programming.
I like how they’re setting up the different characters’ conflicts about their lives in this timeline. I said in last week’s thread that I hoped they would let this story play out over at least a few episodes, or even the whole season, so I’m happy there was no reset button pushed this week. Henry stated that they are stuck for good in this new timeline, but I’m sure an opportunity will arise sooner or later for them to return ‘home.’
This also seems to be the easiest fix. Jo doesn’t appear to be involved with anyone, and Zane’s remark about having a date indicates he isn’t currently part of a committed relationship. The banter at the jailhouse shows that he’s obviously attracted to her (despite his dismissal of the idea of marrying her).
It may be problematic starting a relationship over from square one, especially if one has a clearer vision of where it’s heading than the other, but certainly not insurmountable.
Yeah, but he’s been in love with her since Day One, and never gotten past first. He’s boffing Tess now, more or less in both timelines, and Allison will be with another shortly, or already is and doesn’t know it yet. Ed Quinn is rumored to be returning.
I had heard the rumors about what you’re referring to in the teaser so that didn’t shock me, but I was surprised by the “reveal” at the end of this episode. I didn’t see that coming at all, but I like it! One thing struck me as Dr. Grant walked toward “The Diner”: Is that the same mysterious diner from Warehouse 13–the one Artie went to once to meet Mrs. Frederic and that Badger guy from *Firefly *and BSG? It looked like it, and we know these two shows (alt-*Eureka *and Warehouse 13) exist in the same universe with each other. It may just be a similar looking diner set, but it’ll be cool if there’s a connection.
This was a really good episode–mostly because of the Jack/Allison stuff, but the Zoe/Zane/Jo triangle could be fun, too.
I thought the “She Blinded Me With Science” scene at the end was awful, though. Really, *really *bad. I was cringing while watching that. I noticed that Joe Morton (“Henry”) directed this episode, and I’m wondering if that scene was his idea.
I’m glad they’re finally going somewhere with Grant’s character other than having him just hanging around and hitting on Allison all day (though that wouldn’t be a bad way to spend a day). And while I like James Callis, his American accent is not good at all. I keep hearing an Englishman behind that fake 1940’s American accent, and it kinda ruins my suspension of disbelief.
Loving the show, though. This season has been excellent overall. I’m glad that the entire season has been set in this alternate timeline and there was no quick reset.
Everybody thought it was bad, including the characters. That was the point, of course. Jack told Henry to ask advice from someone that was his opposite. Since Henry is uber-competent and sophisticated to a degree, it is only logical that a) he would Fargo for an idea, and b) it would be one that was that stupid. Add to it c) Fargo knows he’s a different Henry, so there aren’t any awkward questions.
And yes, I do think that is the same diner. Niiice twist there at the end.
eta: Since Felicia Day is slated as a guest-star, I wonder if she and Wheaton will be in the same episode. If so, there will be “Guild” shout-outs galore.
I guess we both mad the same connections…Nathan Stark and Beverly Barlow are back…Now to wonder, did the “Artifact” incident happen??? Is Kim Anderson (Deacon) still around. Remember, Henry went back 4 years at the end of season 1 (2010 to 2006) to save the women he had spent the last 4 years with, only to see her die in 2006. it is now 4 years later and he gets sent to a parralell timeline that we know is different, will he remember Kim???
